Shu Uemura cleansing oil review

I fell in love with Shu Uemura while living in Japan years ago. Unconditional love. Eyelash curler? The best ever. Cleansing oils? My absolute HG. Before discovering this little miracle removing makeup had been an unavoidable hassle: makeup remover, face wash, toner. This is all 3 in 1 – just spread it gently over dry face, massage gently around eye area (removes even waterproof makeup!), add a few drops of water to emulsify (this is important to remove very waterproof makeup), oil will turn milky white. Finally rinse it off with warm water. Voila! Clean, firm, nourished skin!
There are 6 different versions, I’ve tried this 2 so far:

PROS:

  1. removes waterproof makeup easily
  2. barely-there, clean smell
  3. no need for face wash and toner
  4. looks great on the bathroom shelf, convenient pump

CONS:

  1. price – 28 pounds for 150 ml (5 fl. oz) / 56.50 for 450 ml (15.2 fl oz) but oh-so-worth-it!

PROS:

  1. removes waterproof makeup easily
  2. no need for face wash and a toner
  3. anti-aging properties
  4. packed with anti-oxidants
  5. looks great on the bathroom shelf, convenient pump

CONS:

    1. price – 28 pounds for 150 ml (5 fl. oz) / 56.50 for 450 ml (15.2 fl oz)
    2. smells like olive oil, which I personally dislike

TIP: the instructions say to use 3-4 pumps, however I find 1 pump enough for the whole face including eyes… Massive saving!

Would I repurchase:  Absolutely.

Dove pro age body lotion review

This has been such a huge disappointment that I had to write a review… A first of that sort from Dove, have to say, as Nivea & Dove seem to deliver their promises alright.  Well, not this one! Sticky, takes ages to absorb, odd smell, not moisturizing enough, tends to peel off the skin… The only good side is the price, so my wallet hasn’t been as disappointed as my skin.

Would I recommend it? Most certainly not.
